Boyne hope you dont mind - just adding your Graduate BFP Symptoms....

Boynes BFP Symptoms..

My last cycle July / August took the following pattern:
Period CD 1-5
Smear test CD 6
DTD CD 5,7,8,9,13,14,15,16,18,21,22,24,26. – A good tip for the men” plough deep “!!
Cervical secretions:
Creamy CMCD9, 10 & 13.
EWCM, CD 14, 15, 16 + rule of thumb, if you feel wet – have loads of sex. Remaining days no CM for rest of cycle.
Ovulation CD 16, my body told me this also as I recorded a lot of pain/twinges in right side and fertility friend confirmed with the temp charting.

I had some twinges from CD 20 onwards but nothing that I did not have previous month so do not look into this as a sign as I normally have twinges before AF.

CD22/DPO6 – really bad craving for chocolate/sugar & CD23/DPO7, felt really tired, cold shivery, like period coming (maybe this was implantation!!!! I not sure again do not look into this as a sign)

CD26/DPO10 to CD 30/DPO14 very much period symptoms mostly cramps, a little breast tenderness, but this AF symptom also. . With my temps still up I tested on Saturday morning at CD32/16DPO and that is when we got our BFP.

The above may sound very long but please do not look at every symptom literally as really mind were just some period cramps and these were cramps approaching AF so I really took no more major notice but then a friend who I have not seen since Aug BK sent me a test asking was I preg.

Hey girls
My symptoms were as follows:

After ovulation I hand twinges in my lower abdomen on the left handside. They came and went for a few days.
At 6dpo I had a slight brownish pink spotting. I had it again at 8dpo, actually I had a lot that day, I'm putting that down to an implantation bleed (not everyone gets this though). I was also weeing a lot more than usual, and it was really yellow also. The yellowness was nothing to do with B-vitamins, as I was only taking Folic Acid.
I woke up on 9dpo and was very nauseous, nearly got sick when I went up and down the stairs, had to lie down on the bed to get my breath back.
The following night I woke during the night, feeling very sick, in fact the sickness woke me that night.
Was still very nauseous on 11dpo, so decided to test that evening and got a BFP.

Hope this helps girls!!

I have just got a BFP but was having cycle problems so I cant accurately say where I am DPO. I think I am really early though (about 3 weeks)

Symptoms very faint - (only tested as I had to go to Dentist)

Tender boobs
Terrible spots (including cold sore - yuk)
Problems sleeping (but very tired all the time)
CM (yellowy)

thats it.
